Trading Update, October 2023

William Connors has always solely owned Computer Emergency.

In 2020, William Connors and Glenn Cadman created WillCad Pty Ltd, which operated as Bridge IT Solutions until 2023. They decided to split the business – Bridge IT Solutions for hardware sales and Computer Emergency for services.

In June 2023, they closed down WillCad.

William moved the name Bridge IT Solutions to his other business, Computer Emergency, in July 2023.

October 2023, he decided to unify the two names into one business called Bridge IT, which better represents the company’s direction. This also helps simply & streamline all areas of the business. 

So, it’s the same owner, same business services, and same location, but now it’s all under the name Bridge IT.
